Jamieson Gathering for Members and Partners

Location
Berrington Cabins


Once again we will gather in the beautiful gardens at Berrington Cabins for a weekend of papery activities. This time we will be making paper and garden inspired sculpture from plants and will work with Helen Hiebert to produce a book of paper weavings. There will also be an opportunity to make jelly prints which can be used in the paper weaving session.

Berrington cottages

The beautiful Jamieson River and the township are a short walk away.

We will be accommodated in a 3 bedroom house plus 3 x 2 bedroom cabins on the large Berrington property. These offer a total of 5 double and 3 twin rooms. Members will be able to book a room for a couple, a single room or a bed in a twin room. The caravan park is also very close and offers the possibility of overflow accommodation, or an alternative for those who don’t want to share a house/cabin/room.

The first meal will be at the local hotel and after that attendees will provide food for shared meals apart from breakfasts (bring your own breakfast. Tea, coffee, milk and drinking water will be provided). When you fill out the form there is space for comments please include any dietary requirements in this space.

The accommodation and the activities will be charged separately, partners are welcome to stay in the accommodation and share in the meals but won’t be expected to participate in the activities.

Bookings will open 1 June 2024.

Pricing:

Accommodation: Twin share $120 for two nights $60 extra night, Couple $240 Single room $180
